Tickets are required to attend any concert or recital in person. Patrons must sit in their assigned seat.
Face coverings that cover the nose and mouth are strongly encouraged, but not required, while inside the performance hall.
With a keynote by Naomi André–the foremost authority on Black opera and the first Scholar-in-Residence at the Seattle Opera—the symposium features research papers on the composition, production, history, and criticism of Black opera and the experiences of Black opera practitioners. A concert of excerpts from operas by Black composers follows in the School of Music.
There is no fee to participate in or to attend the symposium and concert, but participants are asked to register.
